Intellectual Property & Technology Law Programs
Our graduate degree programs in Intellectual Property and Technology Law, a Master of Laws (LL.M.) and a Master in the Study of Law (M.S.L.), focus on the application of law and public policy in regards to creativity, invention and innovation.
Each program offers instruction in all aspects of intellectual property law, computer-related and cyberspace law, and entertainment and mass communication law. The courses are rigorous, challenging and reflect contemporary legal issues that affect the law as technology is rapidly integrated into our society.
Degrees offered to both lawyers and non-lawyers
Graduate degrees in Intellectual Property and Technology Law are offered to both lawyers and non-lawyers from the United States and abroad.
Students with a J.D. degree from an accredited U.S. law school may earn an LL.M. degree by completing 24 credits of course work, often in less than nine months of study.
LL.M. degrees are available for international students who have already earned a first degree in law from a foreign university upon the completion of 30 credits of course work.
U.S. and international students who do not have a law degree may earn a Master's Degree in the Study of Law, an M.S.L. degree, by completing 30 credits of course work on a full-time or part-time basis.
